Hi Jerry.

I am organising in December a conference on Rosa Luxemburg. If you  find
it worthwhile, you may communicate the programme as it is now to  the
list. Of course, people willing to come and listen are welcome.  Since
there were some people who had to renounce participation, the  conference
has even some room for more papers to be presented. So, if  by chance
there are some people having ready good work on Luxemburg  (unfortunately,
no possibility to pay the travel), they can send me a  proposal in the
usual format. After the preliminary programme below,  under the heading
"missing papers", people may find the topics which  were originally on the
programme, and now are not because speakers  had to decline the
invitation, topics on which I am particularly
interested in contributions.
